- Bachelor of Arts
Are you interested in tackling the deepest, most enduring questions faced by humankind? Philosophers develop skills in logic, reasoning and argument to come to grips with some of our most challenging problems, from social, political and religious issues to the problem of consciousness and the paradoxes of infinity.
The philosophy major is designed to allow you great flexibility in choosing your courses, both within the department and from complementary disciplines. Your lower-division courses will cover such areas as critical thinking, ethics, logic and the history of philosophy. At the upper division, you will study more specialized topics, such as philosophy as applied to specific academic disciplines, metaphysics, theory of knowledge and the works of individual philosophers.
